Butter Beetroot Stir Fry

"Butter beetroot" is the recipe which I tried myself..rather my innovation:). I just gave it a try one weekend but it turned out great and the flavor of butter with beetroot was unique. Instead of making the normal beetroot fry with coconut flakes this is a different one to try out. Quantity of butter used depends on your taste and how much you like butter. The recipe is here:

Beetroot - 2 medium
Frozen peas - 1/2 cup
Butter - 1 tsp
Salt - as needed
Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
Asafoetida - a pinch
Chilly powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam Masala - a pinch
Oil - 2 tsp

  • Peel and boil the beetroots in a pressure cooker upto 3 whistles
  • Chop this into your desired size cubes.
  • In a pan, add oil, when hot, add mustard seeds, asafoetida.
  • When they crackle, add peas and fry till it becomes soft.
  • Now add beetroot pieces and all the dry powders with salt.
  • Stir well and fry for 5 mins.
  • Add butter now, wait till it melts. Stir well and switch off the pan.
Spicy Beetroot stir fry with butter flavor is ready. Goes well with rice.
